The conception of the state ideology is complicated. Different perspectives of the state ideology have been discussed for many years, and our understanding of the state ideology depends on the context of the study. It is always extremely difficult to describe the ideology for medieval and ancient states, because ancient mentality is a very complicated subject. The present paper describes a proposed study that will seek to explore distinctive features of the state ideology of Muscovy in the late 15th to mid – 16th centuries. The analysis will focus on the different aspects which influenced the creation of the political ideology of Muscovy. The study will be based on a wide range of sources, including chronicles, narratives, sagas, and will address the following issues: What was the theoretical basis of the concept of the state ideology of Muscovy? How was the state ideology formed? Which factors influenced the creation of the ideology of Muscovy?
